Description

This final podcast in the 15 Unicorns series delves into the confirmation hearing itself which is to give information to the senators on the committee who make the initial decision for the Senate. The questioning process is sometimes contentious and looking for areas of weakness such as conflicts of interest and speech and voting records; nothing is off the table. The sessions are available for public scrutiny as well as being open to the press (think C-SPAN, etc.).
